I have two monitors. Just for my setup, I was wondering if I could position one monitor on the left of my 15" 2018 MacBook Pro, and then another one on the left of that.

This is a commonly used multi-monitor setup and pretty simple to configure.

You can either setup the external displays to extend the Desktop or mirror the MacBook display.

Once you have connected the monitors and have set them up physically, arrange them by going to System Preferences → Displays.
